APF at capacity, looking for adoptions
SCOTIA -- The Animal Protective Foundation has put out a public request for pet adoptions, saying that they have been taking in several more animals these days than they've been sending to new homes.
Currently, the shelter is caring for about 135 animals, and more cats than dogs. Resources are being stretched thin, as there's a limit to how many animals the shelter can safely handle. Overcrowding also creates stress and illness among the animals.
As a result, the shelter is offering reduced adoption fees to help solve the problem. Cats and kittens are now $25 and dogs are $50. Seniors can adopt for free, and all pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and tested for various diseases.
